"Terrific and superb!"

Four words. Five out of Five. I'm a British university student having a vacation (but had to study as well, bummer!) and while we didn't spend much time that I have hoped for, she was brilliant in all lessons I had with her. Learned new things and cleared some things I had confusion with DFA and NFA. Oh and she is very nice and kind! Highly recommend this tutor to anyone doing Discrete Math.

Vikki responded quickly and met my son the same day for a precalculus tutoring session. My son has a specific learning style, and the first hour was not beneficial to him. He explained to Vikki his learning style and she thanked him for his input and changed her delivery, which was more suited to his mode of learning. The second hour was much better. He really appreciated her professionalism and started to understand the material much better.
Vikki replied on 1/7/2014:
I actually drove away from that session impressed with your son's negotiating ability & self-awareness. He spoke positively, told me what change he wanted, gave clear reasons, and then we got down to work. I can think of few people who would handle a tense negotiation (where they have that much at stake - he really wanted to do well on the trigonometry quiz) as effectively he did - props to him!

I needed to study for the ASVAB (military intelligence test), and I only had about a week to do it. I went from a score on the practice test issued by my recruiter of 35 (low) to 67 (very high) in three hour-long sessions with Vikki. She is an amazing tutor - easy to understand, and very patient. Thanks to her, I am going to be able to have any job I want in the Navy, instead of being limited by my poor math scores. Highly recommended! Thanks very much, Vikki!
Update: I just took the ASVAB, and I got an 82 - one of the biggest jumps in scores my recruiter had ever seen. I was able to get the job I wanted that is only available to people who score highly - cannot recommend Vikki enough!

My teens have only had one session (AP Calc) with Vikki, but our initial impressions are very positive. First, she was very good about trying to find a rate that would work for us as well as her - two kids tutored at once-same subject-similar ability, etc. The girls felt very good about their first session and felt that what made her good was not just telling them what to do, but letting them struggle a bit and giving them some guidance as they tried to understand. Then also 'testing' them on a similar problem to see if they 'got it'.
Update 12/30/12. Vikki has now been tutoring my senior girls for several months and we continue to be very pleased. She has a very quiet, thoughtful approach to trying to determine what each of them need to work on and has done a great job helping us to figure out where the 'holes' were for one who had suffered a concussion. Lovely, smart and caring.

Vikki is doing a great job with my daughter. She is definitely starting to understand the material and it is showing in her work at school. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for someone who knows the material and is patient and skilled in tutoring!

Vikki was very patient and my daughter found her a very clear and concise tutor. I wish we had found her sooner and we would recommend her highly.
"Must have Tutor"
Laura from Naperville, IL on 5/5/12
Vikki is wonderful and a must have tutor. With just to two tutoring sessions, my daughter received an A on her recent Geometry test. My daughter already is showing more confidence in her math abilities. I highly recommend Vikki as a tutor.
"Responsive and thorough tutor!"

My son's feedback -- I had questions on a specific math subject matter and Vicki did a great job of explaining the concepts and helping my understand how to apply them to problems. I felt comfortable with those problems on my exam.
"Excellent communication with student and very nice!"
John from Evergreen Park, IL on 12/12/11
